Another Step to RevCon 2010

Posted by Jill Marie Parillo on May 13, 2009

Draft recommendations are shaping up for the 2010 RevCon. The Zimbabwean chair released a draft of his recommendations to the NGOs. A few of the PrepCom chair’s recommendations to the 2010 RevCon Chair, Philippines Ambassador Libran Nuevas Cabactulan, are to:

  • Declare the Treaty is an expression of fundamental principles of nuclear disarmament and nonproliferation and remains a cornerstone of the global disarmament regime.
  • Reaffirm the commitment shared by States parties to achieving universal membership and call upon all states parties to adhere to the NPT.
  • Reaffirm commitments to nuclear disarmament, acknowledging commitments made at the 1995 and 2000 Review Conferences.
  • Identify several practical disarmament initiatives including: the entry into force of the CTBT, beginning FMCT negotiations, and implementing transparent steps towards disarmament.
  • Reaffirm the IAEA’s importance in verifying compliance with the NPT, and the importance of their initiative, multilateral approaches to the fuel cycle.
  • Affirm the importance of Security Assurances.
  • Reaffirm the inalienable rights of states to peaceful nuclear technology under article IV.
  • Recall that the NPT 1995 extension is linked to the Resolution on the Middle East.
